Topographic Surveys in Bergen County NJ

What is a topographic survey? 

Topographic Surveys in Bergen County NJ
Topographic surveys in Bergen County, NJ establish the different man-made and natural features of land. Land may include hills, trees, fences, buildings, and ravines. A topographical survey will provide exact figures of the size, height and position of different changes that have occurred over the course of time with regard to their presence or that of any man made structure.

Why do you need a topographic survey?

It provides accurate information to allow each step to be done correctly and within budget. There are many projects that make use of topographic surveys and they are also often a requirement for submittal of permit plans. Understanding the shape of the natural and man-made features of a parcel of land is a crucial part of an engineering design project. Knowing the elevation of every square foot of a property helps architects, contractor, property owners and developers determine where and how they can begin construction. Whether a client is looking to do something as simple as putting up a fence or as complex as construction of a multi-use residential or commercial property, no serious planning can be done without a keen understanding of the physical landscape where the construction is to take place.

Benefits of topographic surveys:

  • Determine existing conditions and identify any issues with a site or natural area.
  • Show "setbacks" from boundaries or nature features for any new building or development.
  • Provide engineers and architects with the necessary information to create correct designs for the property's unique features.
  • Indicate how new features, such as grading, building structures, drainage ditches and bridges, can be constructed.
